Cannes Docs 2022 - Palestine Showcase of Docs-in-Progress
Jamal Hindawi (50), Palestinian, lives with his family in the Shatila refugee camp in Beirut, where he makes political theatre. Together with a group of friends, he is currently working on a play that tells the story of an old jacket that symbolises the Palestinian identity. But the evening before the premiere of the play, Jamal loses the theatre prop. He starts a nightly journey through the streets of Beirut and is confronted with a city in radical transition. The successive crises and protests leave deep scars.
